you might check, they come to your house and take it for repairs up to those 5 years.
Sony no longer offers extended warranties. Plus EWs are generally not worth the expense; if something is inherently wrong in a piece of electronics like a TV it will usually manifest itself before the first year is up. Additionally, most major credit cards (including the one I used for this purchase) will double the manufacturer's warranty period, giving me two years of coverage.
However, given the very high cost of this TV and the impracticality of anything short of in-house service due to its size, I might still give some thought to an EW from the retailer, AAFES. They offer three years @ $200 or four years @ $270. Doesn't seem worth it, but I won't dismiss the option out-of-hand to have four years' peace of mind.
